    COTM ~Dec 13~ KoKoSe7eN

    My addiction started in the summer of 2011. I met a new friend that had an e30. It's not until he showed me his m50 swap that I saw the potential of these cars. Few weeks later he let me test drive!!! I sold my 2004 Mazda RX-8 that same week and bought a 1991 318is the next day. Then the start of an addiction!

    In the beginning, my plans on the car were simple. I wanted the same thrill I had with my first experience in a swapped e30, so I wanted to swap mine too. I purchased the engine and the suspension in Dec/2011. During the time I was waiting on the parts, I stripped the whole car down and decided to change everything! So my interior, suspension, engine, trunk, windows, sunroof, ect were off! My simple plans when simply crazy. I cleaned everything that I could and reinforced what I needed. When my engine and suspension came in, I took the engine apart. I sealed it back up and I was ready to swap. My plans were to have modest car visually but have a lot of power and balance. I still wanted it to have all the luxury of the new cars so I wanted a fully functioning car with brake booster, abs, air conditioning, power steering and complete interior. During the time of the swap, I couldn’t believe how addicted I was with an e30. It had so much potential!! I finished the interior, engine and suspension 2 months later on Feb/2012. That same month I BAR’d the car and it was a blast to drive as a daily!!! I thought I was done! I was wrong… a few months later I decided I wanted to put a supercharger and bought one off a friend. After the installation...Just wow! During the months after, its been a ritual to check on r3v and craigslist for parts daily, even till this day. My recent mods today is the genuine mtech ii kit. E30’s changed everything for me. I will be a lifelong fan of these cars. Can’t say my future plans just yet, but I will share it as soon as I’m ready.
